"Let food be thy medicine and
medicine be thy food." Hippocrates
Incorporating anti-inflammatory foods along with herbs and spices improves overall health and wellness. Drinking 8oz. of green tea with 1 teaspoon of Turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon and a 1/4 teaspoon of Black Pepper is a great start in reducing inflammation throughout the body and gut while regulating blood sugar. Use organic spices whenever possible along with the Ceylon variety of cinnamon, also known as "true" cinnamon.
